Best of Enemies

The battle blows of this 1968 TV event were every bit as wicked and bruising of any heavyweight fight, only boxing gloves weren’t delivering the damage. Words by William F. Buckley Jr., a hard right conservative, and Democrat Gore Vidal, a leftist novelist and cousin to Jackie Onassis, were hurled as weapons in a historic series of debates, broadcast live and not scripted by ABC-TV. With a captive audience and sky-high ratings, these two warriors thrashed about in a flurry of personal insults, policy degradation and name-calling breaking in a new era in TV history. 1968/color/88 min/R/widescreen.
|Run Time:||88 minutes|
